Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You
This book is adorable. It is interactive and stars a wee monster that you gotta love even though he is naughty. He, like Houdini, is an escape artist, and when gets out of his cage he heads straight for his first love.... his love of eating books! Yep, Nibbles is a book monster!
He bounds straight for the classics: Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Goldilocks and the Three Bears too. Today he is fine dining on fairytales. He chomps, munches, and nibbles through their pages causing damage and emotional stress to the main characters and their story plots. Oh my! Can anyone stop him and put him back in his cage where he belongs?
Kids lift flaps and peek thorough peep holes to try and track down this precocious, adventurous little guy. The interactive cut-outs are very effective and the author/illustrator has added many fun features, one being, trying to locate Nibbles in the midst of all the mayhem he is creating. All the detailed illustrations are very kid-friendly and mesmerizing. The story is open-ended leaving a perfect opportunity for a sequel which I hope she delivers. Both kids and adults will love this book and I highly recommend it.
